    Rita~'s Note:

    A cajun dish. A deep fried yummy Shrimp-Eggplant Beignets served with my sauce. Or use your own sauce. A big hit at my house. Adjust the oil so it not too hot when cooking. The eggplant gives the dough an extra creaminess. Go ahead and salt, rinse and dry your eggplant if you normally do it. I never do and I enjoy the slight bitterness eggplant has. To each your own! ;)

      OMG ~ these are just to die for :) WONDERFUL flavor, and they cooked up so fast. I used fresh baby white eggplant from my garden, and 2 very large garlic cloves. I think next time I'll add a bit more red pepper flakes, and salt (I cut the salt to 1 teaspoon and should have added 1 1/2 as written).I ended up with 40 beignets, and they were a healthy size. ~Rita~, thanks so much for a FABULOUS recipe ~ this one definitely goes in the keeper cookbook and in my opinion, would be very impressive to serve to company. BRAVO! Made for ZWT5, Bodacious Brickhouse Babes.

      Very light and fluffy fried seafood beignets. They were like tempura...very light and fluffy. I chose this because I have way too many eggplants from the garden, and this was a very unique way to use them. A bonus...my DS ate eggplant and enjoyed it for the first time! I used Virginia Cherry Blossom's Creole Remoulade Sauce 373985 because I really like capers in my remoulade sauce, plus she is a Senorita!! Made for ZWT5.
